    Flautas are meat-filled tortillas rolled up and fried like a chimichanga. These make a nice appetizer with salsa and sour cream...

      Fantastic! I used my oven to warm the tortillas for easier rolling. I wrapped them in stacks of 5 in foil and put them in at 175F while I made the filling. Thanks!
